Dr Stephen Beatty
BSc. (Hons) PhD

Senior Research Fellow

About me

I am a translational researcher and my work aims to make a real-world impact on the conservation of aquatic ecosystems.

I have broad research interests relating to the conservation of inland aquatic ecosystems.  Past and current research includes the impacts of water abstraction, climate change, introduced species, and water quality decline on aquatic ecosystems with a particular focus on fish communities. I am very passionate about the extension of science to the broader community particularly to regional areas. Feel free to contact me anytime on

Teaching area

I am always eager to supervise bright, passionate post-graduate students.  As of June 2016, I have supervised 10 PhD students, and 10 Honours (including current students). I always have exciting, funded research projects available so drop me a line or call to chat about current oppotunities.

I am also passionate about extending science to the community.  I regularly engage with schools to conduct field days and workshops.  I also appreciate the importance of media exposure for promoting research to the community. Since 2013, my research resulted in 105 media items including articles in the New York Times, Washington Post, Seattle Times, the Scientific American, Time Magazine (Asia), and BBC online among many others.

 

Research areas

My main research interest relates to understanding and addressing the threatening processes affecting freshwater ecosystems.  Particular focus areas include the impacts of climate change, habitat degradation, water extraction, salinisation, introduced species and river regulation.  I have also undertaken research into the population biology of crayfishes for sustainable management of fisheries.

My research regularly features in the media including articles in the New York Times, Washington Post, Seattle Times, the Scientific American, Time Magazine (Asia), and BBC among many others.

Current projects

I always have plenty of projects being underaken.

Please drop me an email to discuss my full range of current projects, grants and activities or visit:

Some recent projects include:

  • SwanTrack – tracking black bream to determine habitat use in relation to physiology and environmental conditions in the iconic Swan-Canning Estuary.
  • Vasse-Wonnerup fish tracking project (State NRM Office): 2014-2015
  • Conserving unique aestivating fishes under threat from climate and habitat change (State NRM Office): 2014-2015
  • Pilbara Freshwater Fish Documentary and Field Guide (State NRM Office): 2013 – 2014.
  • Protecting fishes in the South-west Linkages Area (SWCC): 2013-2015.
  • Conserving south-west freshwater fishes (State Strategic Grant: NRM Office) 2012-2015
  • Adapting to climate change: a risk assessment and decision framework for managing groundwater dependent ecosystems with declining water levels (National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility)
  • Introduced fish and crayfish in Vasse-Wonnerup Ramsar Wetlands (Caring for Our Country)
  • Killing with kindness? Removing introduced fishes may amplify parasitic infections in native fishes (Australian Pacific Science Foundations)

 

Awards and grants

I am a translational researcher and my work aims to make a real-world impact on the conservation of aquatic ecosystems.

Between 2009-March 2017, I have secured (either Chief or co-investigator) 69 grants totalling >$4mill including 39 grants as Cheif Investigator (~$2mill).

These awards and grants are reflected in my publication record. As of March 2017, I have produced 107 technical reports for a wide variety of goverment and industry bodies. This is in addition to 7 books and 58 journal papers.

Professional and community service

I strongly believe that a key responsibility of being an effective scientist is having direct interaction with the broader community to promote science in general, and Murdoch University specifically. Part of my role at Murdoch is promotion of science and the University into the broader community through media engagement, school and community workshops, presentations and fielddays. Some of my recent roles and community interactions are listed below.

  • Chair Education Committee, Australian Society for Fish Biology (2015-present)
  • Scientist in Schools – Winthrop Primary School and Georgiana Molloy SHS (Busselton)
  • Co-conceiver and Organiser – Inaugural Western Australian Freshwater Fish Symposium Nov 2013
  • Australian Society for Fish Biology – Executive Council member 2009-2013 (Western Australian representative 2009-2013)
  • Australian Society for Fish Biology – Threatened species committee member 2009-present
  • Member organising committee 9th Indo-Pacific / Australian Society for Fish Biology Conference 2009, and ASFB Albany 2017.
